WCC Foundation Gala 2023
Friday, September 29, 2023
Thank you to the nearly 300 guests and dozens of sponsors who made this year's Gala a rousing success! We raised nearly $240,000, including $50,000 to create five new endowed scholarships. Proceeds will benefit the Student Emergency Fund, which keeps WCC students in the classroom when they face unexpected financial needs.
Thank You to Our Gala Sponsors!

Proceeds from the WCC Foundation Gala will benefit the Student Emergency Fund (SEF) and other programs. The SEF meets unexpected financial hardships that can threaten a student’s education. We know that philanthropy works – 84% of students who receive funding remain enrolled or graduate from WCC. Some of these barriers include food insecurities, childcare, housing, transportation, and other unexpected costs. Your support helps ensure these students get to class and stay on their educational journey.
